Who Should Take this Equality and Diversity Training?

This equality and diversity training provides suitable information for all levels of employees and managers who need to be aware of the best equality and diversity workplace practices.

The Equality Act 2010 is aimed at addressing the perceived lack of progress in Great Britain on equality. Under the Act, all public sector organisations have the duty to promote and achieve equality in their workforces, and business outside the public sector must be seen to be following their example.
